On Sunday, I was lucky enough to be invited for afternoon tea and a spa day at the Dorchester Hotel by Asda’s little angels. The whole day was amazing and although very shy I got to meet lots of other mummy blogger’s and had a truly wonderful day, one I hope to repeat one day.
As lovely as it all was, the main reason for attending was to find out more about ASDA’s little angel nappy range. As a mum of two and having had countless experience with other babies I didn’t think there was much they could tell me about nappies which I didn’t already know! But I was surprised to learn some new information which will not only help me but hopefully means I can pass on some knowledge to others, seeing as I often see these questions asked in many of the baby forums I read.
The 5 things I didn’t know about Asda nappies…
1, ASDA will exchange nappies for bigger/smaller sizes.
one of the questions I think every mum will ask or struggles with, is what size nappies to buy for their unborn baby? Sizing in nappies can often be confusing using both numbers and weight. Asda new born nappies come in 3 sizes’ 0,1,2 and each size has the weight range the best way is to go by the weight range. Once the baby is born s/he will be weighed and this will give you a better idea of what size to buy until then its recommend buying a few packs of each size and exchange any you don’t need. (Be aware size 0 is for premature babies)
2, ASDA deliver their nappies.
Ok so technically I did know this but it’s not occurred to me before now, how convenient this is when your stuck at home with a new born or if you don’t drive and struggle getting the nappies home on the bus. once the baby has been born and you know their weight you can order nappies from your hospital bed to be delivered once your home. What could be simpler?
3, Asda nappies are not only designed to look pretty!
There is a reason ASDA have a colour section on the front of all their nappies, it’s another way to check the sizing and fit of the nappy. Useful when you have not had your baby weighed for a while. The tags should stick within the coloured area for the best fit. Not only do they look pretty they state they have Super soft – feather-like softness which I can confirm after feeling them for myself.
4, Poo explosion
Sorry if you’re a first-time mum and have not heard of a poo explosion before but it’s something every mum dreads! a Poo explosion happens because nappies are not holding the poo within the nappy areas allowing it to travel out of the leg hole or up their backs. But Hopefully with the support of ASDA nappies you will never know the dread that comes with a poo explosion because they have been working hard to make them a thing of the past! ASDA little angel nappies have been designed with an elasticated back and leg holes helping to contain the poo without causing discomfort to the little angel in your life.
5, The all-time consuming question what does the + symbol mean on nappies
I have read a number of debates on social media and baby forums about the meaning behind the + symbol on nappies, some argue that it means the nappy is bigger in size ( like half a size up) others say it’s because the nappy has more absorbency.
The correct answer is…both answers are right! Although the main purpose of the + symbol is that they offer more absorbency, they also can accommodate a bigger weight range meaning they are slightly bigger than the normal range.
I hope you found the above information as useful as I did!
If you need any more convincing to give Little Angels nappy a try they have been given the Mumsnet Approval!
